Dennis Muchmore, chief of staff for Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, will be joining the law firm Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn on Feb. 1. At Honigman, Muchmore will lead the firm’s government relations and regulatory practice group.

He will continue serving the Michigan governor as chief of staff until Jan. 20, as the role transitions to Jarrod Agen. Muchmore has been Snyder’s chief of staff since the start of the administration, playing a key role in Michigan’s reinvention, helping develop policy and overseeing about 47,000 state government employees. Snyder’s tenure includes rebuilding Detroit’s fiscal foundation after the nation’s largest municipal bankruptcy, setting the environment for state businesses to create more than 420,000 private sector jobs.
